Donate to FBi

It’s ingrained in FBi Radio’s DNA to take risks and try new things. In the last few years, we’ve ventured beyond the FM signal in serious style.

We celebrated a decade of existence with our very own FBi Turns 10 festival, which had over 8000 people turn up to help us blow out the candles. Each year we run training programs for new broadcasters and volunteers, creating pathways to the creative industries for passionate young people. The Sydney Music Arts and Culture (SMAC) Awards have run for the last six years, recognising Sydney’s homegrown talent. We also had our very own Sydney venue, FBi Social, from 2011-2014 which gave a home to Sydney’s new and established bands and performers.

While we’re always on the lookout for ways to better ourselves and push the envelope, we’re trying to manage a fine balance between forging new paths and ensuring sustainable growth. Our current income allows us to keep the station rolling – and we’ve perfected the art of making great radio with a tight budget. But to keep doing new things beyond just staying afloat, we’re looking for donations from people who want to invest in the future of FBi. Basically we need you to get behind us, so we can stay in front.

Here are some ways your donations could help us:

$10 could buy us some new glasses for the kitchen (so our international guests don’t always get mugs!)
$100 could get us two new pairs of headphones or new cables for the studio
$1000 could get us new screens for our studio playout system or updated software
$5000 could contribute to the development of our website
$10,000 could allow us to broadcast new content on digital radio for 3 months, ensuring our audience can access FBi content in multiple ways.
$50,000 could pay for us to expand the SMAC Awards
$100,000 could allow us to refit our studios
$500,000 could… okay so we’re getting ahead of ourselves, but you know what we mean!
